Customer Question
I am a 74...

I am a 74 year old female. A few days ago I fell and hit my head on a table beside my bed. Now I see that I have some bruising on my forehead above my left eye and under my eye and down left side of my nose. Do I need to see a dr?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

About 5 days. No breathing problems.I just noticed the bruising down the left side of my nose tonight.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I am on toprol, lisinopril and Levaquin for a UTI
